Blue Mountains Day Trip from Sydney Including Scenic World

Likely To Sell Out
Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Explore the beautiful Blue Mountains on a day trip from Sydney. Start your day with a visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park where you'll see a number of native Australian animals. From here, head to Echo Point for the perfect view of the iconic Three Sisters. For those nature lovers, a visit to Scenic World won't disappoint. Enjoy a cable-way ride with glass-floor cabins offering stunning views over the valley. Then, finish your day with a river cruise up the Parramatta River back to either Circular Quay (finishes at 6.15pm) or Darling Harbour (near Barangaroo at 6.30pm).
  • Day trip to Blue Mountains from Sydney covers more attractions in less time
  • Beat the crowds on an early morning visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park
  • Three sightseeing rides at Scenic World Blue Mountains included
  • Pit stops at scenic viewpoints let you snap photos during the ride
  • Return to Sydney via ferry, avoiding rush hour traffic
What to Expect
Begin your day with pickup from your central Sydney hotel or other centrally located pickup point. Meet your guide and group, and board a bus to Featherdale Wildlife Park. An early morning visit lets you beat the crowds and spend more time viewing koalas, kangaroos, and other Australian wildlife. Then, head to Echo Point Katoomba for an unbeatable view of the Three Sisters rock formation, one of the most well-known attractions in the Blue Mountains. Stop just long enough to learn the history of the area and snap a picture before continuing to the sightseeing rides at Scenic World Blue Mountains. Take three rides around the UNESCO-listed rain forest, including the glass-bottomed cableway that goes right past Katoomba Falls. Complete your tour with a ferry ride back to Darling Harbour or Circular Quay, swapping rush hour traffic for a scenic cruise past some of Sydney’s most valuable real estate.
